Thad Matta picks up a quick verbal from the third member of the 2014 class, as Garfield Height’s David Bell commits following his visit.
Bell, a 6′ 7″ forward, was on campus yesterday for a visit, and received his official offer today. He accepted shortly thereafter.
Bell is averaging 17. 3 points a game to go with 4.6 blocks and 8.1 rebounds per contest. He’s been on the Buckeyes’ radar for a while, and is currently rated as a three star recruit by several services. Again, at this point he’s only in his junior season, so there’s a tremendous upside for the young man.
His interest list included DePaul as well as a number of smaller schools in Ohio (Dayton, Cleveland State, Miami of Ohio). After the jump, check out his work in last summer’s “Flyin’ To The Rim” competition.
Glad to have you on board, David- Welcome to the Buckeye Family!
